Alhambra : Tao-Confucianism Center OKd
The City Council has approved a zoning change and two use permits that would allow the the YMCA building at Main and Almansor to be used as a cultural center by the Mission of Tao-Confucianism. The Planning Commission approved the proposals Sept. 16.
Mission officials want to use the building for language and philosophy classes and recreational activities. The YMCA plans to move to new facilities in Almansor Park.
An attorney for the Alhambra Town House Assn., whose members own condominiums near the YMCA, opposed the change, contending that not enough is known about the mission and that traffic and parking problems would increase.
